    Watching Inside the Factory about yoghurt.

    Dinner was some crab and crayfish pasta and a selection of meats and cheeses antipasti.

    Tea has been lamb scouse with the thick end of a sesame bloomer, both of which help to make room in the freezer for the Scotch broth and lamb scouse I'm making tomorrow

    By the way, the bits of the city centre I visited this afternoon (which weren't the main thoroughfares by any stretch, being more the little back streets off which we bury kings) were extremely quiet and empty. Even the marketplace hardly had anybody in it. All much quieter than around here

    Tonight's viewing, apart from the usual police stuff whilst eating, was Bron/Broen S2E10, being the final piece of the puzzle

    The slow cooker is on, so the kitchen should have a nice brothy aroma first thing in the morning

    Goodnight all

    Morning all

    Dark and wet out, raining. Currently 6 degrees that's the best it'll do today. Rain will continue to feature throughout. Barometer down to 1003 mBar.

    Morning.

    I need coffee. Lots of coffee...

    Morning.

    Grey.

    Dark.

    Dreary.

    No current precipitation but it looks like it's thinking about it.

    Sunless.

    Warmer. 17.1 deg in here this morning <sweat>

    1015 mBar, 29.97 inHg, 55% RH.

    Thursday.

    Didn't hear the Refuse Disposal Engineers this morning.

    Either they were very quiet or I was asleep.

    <hiatus>

    Apparently it was a wheelybin/black binbag day as well, just like last week.

    Trip down to the health centre to collect said presciption, followed by trip across the car park to the dispensing chemist for that & another packet of pills.

    Queued outside both establishments as not allowed in any more.

    Had mask on & cleared throat, as is my habit, with my mouth closed, only for everyone to back off another 3 feet in alarm.

    Having dispensed said medicaments next door it was time for a walk in the intermittent drizzle.

    Had a conversation with a lady who, it transpires, is a nurse.

    Even saw some blue sky through the clouds of grey.

    Lunch: Heinz leek & potato soup with Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, bramble jelly sandwich on crust of same, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    As to what joys the afternoon, holds, that's TBD.

    I suppose I could potch about with the door on the tinshed.

    Considering that work is currently happening on the party wall, going out might just be a good idea.

    <hiatus>

    More tinsheddery undertaken, potching++.

    It's amazing how it all seems to work out, little by little.

    Amongst today's epics was the painting of the repairs to the shed door with some ancient Proper Paint: "Cinnamon" BBE 1965 at a guess, so properly proper paint, not thixotropic but runny & hopefully full of lead.

    Afternoon Entertainment in the increasing gloom: Sewermen S2 E9 & 10.

    <hiatus>

    Tea: chilli con carne with rice, Xmas pud with custard (too much milk in fridge), 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment:

    History Cold Case: Crossbones Girl: skeleton covered in scars ?syphilis?

    Hadrian's Wall with Robson Green.

    In other news, whilst the clavicle zit is receding, a zit on my back burst whilst I was showering exactly in a place I can't reach to put a plaster on it.

    Never mind, the shirt seems to be doing the job of the plaster.

    Must remember to soak it overnight.

    And you know what? It's really good! The whole thing looks better now than it did when I first moved here, I reckon

    It's basically just a very thick paste of soap and vegetable oil with a mild abrasive (and some pink dye), but it's well worth a look if you have anything in need of such a treatment.
    B&M is the place to go for The Pink Stuff - I got both the paste and the spray from there.

    I find that it's just as good as Bar Keeper's Friend.

    Heard of The Pink Stuff and seen it sold somewhere but had to google Bar Keeper's Friend. Also no B&M near me. Mind you it took ages for one Wilkinsons to appear near me then they proliferated like crazy.
